OSV: ‘Older Catholics Find Romance Online’

Senior citizens embrace online dating: Our Sunday Visitor features CatholicMatch.com

Our thanks to Ray and Jeanne, a big-hearted couple, and to our beloved Leon-593843, for representing CatholicMatch so well in this Our Sunday Visitor feature. We are proud to claim such a large, impressive group of older singles, including nearly 500 80-somethings!

Here’s how Maryann Gogniat Eidemiller began her story:


Jeanne Bullock laughed when she saw her future husband’s photo on CatholicMatch.com.

“Ray was wearing a white wig and was pretending to be J.S. Bach conducting an orchestra,” she said. “I thought, ‘This man isn’t afraid to play,’ so I looked at his profile. I could tell that he loved the Lord, too, and that was important.”

They met, they married last fall and now live in Barrington, R.I.

Their ages — he’s 67 and she’s 65 — disprove the notion that falling in love — and using the computer to do so — is only for the young.
